Details for Master of Shell
Super Mario World Hacks - Master of Shell Link - Show random
File Name: Master of Shell
Authors: ageVerrly
Demo: No
Featured: No
Length: 16 exit(s)
Type: Kaizo: Expert
Description: After I received a lot of positive feedback I decided to upload this here!

There are 2 paths: master and novice. The master route is the standard mode while the novice route consists of easier versions of the same 6 levels (heavily nerfed).
The novice path requires a lot less jump control and doesn't force the harder tricks and inputs. It is doable even by less experienced marios and could also be a good preparation for the master path.

The master path is the main game and is rather tricky. The special world can only be found by a true master.

While you can get 16 exits in total, 9 can be considered 100% (master path + special world).

Like every shell hack this is inspired by sheffy 2. Another big inspiration for me was Various Dragons.

Special thanks to DJLocks for making a cool TAS (but without the S):

Thanks to Katun and GlitchCat for playing this and showing me some breaks.

My own clear video showing intended strats can be found here in case you get stuck:

Note that these videos don't show everything that is in this version. But they should be sufficient.

Edit: For the last trick in the castle on master mode you need to do what DJ did. Just shell jumping does not work anymore.

I finished Novice, and I'll speak on how I feel about that mode since I didn't attempt Master.

Really good and unique hack that has a wide variety of shell tech that's not always seen in other shell hacks. Novice is tough, but I feel that it's not the most outrageous shell hack/level I've played. Most of the difficulty comes from doing somewhat harder tricks or sometimes weird angles, but it's not stacked in a way that it's outright heavy execution on density of back to back tricks.

Since the clear video that Age posted is of older levels I made a clear video based upon the submitted version, and I'm doing a few different strats than intended.

Removed the "Kaizo: Intermediate" difficulty and kept Kaizo: Expert. Multiple difficulties are only for hacks that have standard and kaizo levels on it.

Extremely hard shell hack, probably the most difficult existing these days, and probably harder than Sheffy World 2 and other well known shell hacks. Amazing work, age!
